  • We went on a birthday celebration for a friend and we were placed in a private room with just our party. The sticker price is a little daunting but it was worth it. The buffet was worth the wait and w...  more »

  • The Buffet: Not the worst I've ever had, but far from the best. The staff for the most part behaved as if they hated their jobs - which is never a good sign. I was there on a Friday (Prime Rib) night and the prime rib, while okay flavored, was cooked beyond what any chef would say was well well done. Prime Rib should be cooked nowhere beyond medium - medium rare. It was almost sawdust. The selection was pretty small and most of the food had clearly been out simmering longer than it probably should have. The price was fair, however. The Casino: The slots were not ridiculously tight - but were far from generous. The selection of slots is *tiny* if you're used to some of the larger casinos. And they allow smoking - an irritation for my non-smoking wife and I.
  • It was great at first. But one night I was out late with family I hadn't seen in years and none of my keys were working (this seemed to be a reoccurring issue the whole five days and they kept fixing the issue saying they know the cards sometimes are stubborn, and that was okay). However, I got in late and the keys weren't working. So I went to the desk and told them the room I was in and the name it was under before they even asked anything. They then told me I would not get a key since I was not the room holder. My mom was. I asked them what they wanted me to do then at 2 am. They told me it was illegal for them to give me a key to my room. So, what if my mom booked it for me and I was staying by myself? What if my 14 year old brother asked them for a key because he was out late with family (hopefully not 2 am late)? Not give him a key? Let him sit outside? I provided them with my room number and my mother's name before they even asked and they still refused me a key to my room. First off, not illegal. Holiday Inns let me in my room, and the hotel had done it for me before, so why not then? The woman at the desk then gave me an attitude after telling me it was illegal and refused my key, then turned to someone else and asked them if she could help them. I was then forced to call my mom at 2 am in the morning to ask her to open the door. I walked away from the keys, left them on the counter, and tried to write a review on my phone (it wouldn't let me). How ridiculous, and I have never had an experience like that, even at 2 star hotels. They weren't the best, but still had better service and less attitude. I am in my mid 20's and it was the nicest hotel I had ever been in, but after that, nope. Never going back. Illegal is a nice excuse. I should have asked for the manager, but my mistake.
  • I can only share my review of the Saturday seafood buffet, because that's the only reason I visited. But, I have to say that it was absolutely amazing! There is so much to choose from! I was really impressed with the crab legs. They weren't overly salty and they were hot and fresh. I got a piece of prime rib that was done just the way I like it and very tender. I was so full I didn't even have room for dessert at the Gelato bar.
  • We ate dinner at the casino's Robert's Buffet on a Thursday evening at 5 PM. Thursday's dinner theme is Western Grill. We like this so much that this is our third visit on a Thursday. We have eaten at the buffets of the area's other two casinos, and this is our favorite. The Western Grill night includes charcoal-grilled Rib Eye steak, rubbed BBQ pork ribs, rubbed BBQ brisket, smoked beef roast, pork loin, and multiple kinds of chicken. For those who prefer less red meat, there was breaded cod, grilled tilapia, coconut and non-peeled shrimp, lasagna, Chinese stir fry dishes, and numerous vegetarian options-- including a large salad bar. What we particularly like about Robert's is that unlike many buffets, everything is very flavorful. The food is also kept hot and fresh. The dessert selection is large and tasty, and includes some exotic choices like flan, Irish Cream bars, and about 12 flavors of a gelato-like ice cream. At $19 per person, the buffet is not inexpensive, but given that the food is excellent and your (non- alcohol) beverages and dessert are included, the value is still there compared to other restaurant choices. Note: I think the Friday and Saturday buffets may be more expensive because crab legs are served. Additionally, I have never seen children there-- because it's a casino they MAY not be allowed.
  • Typical casino atmosphere. Like the live entertainment in the round type setting. A little more seating and room to move would be better. Don't care for the smoking that's allowed but it also means you can vape so I deal with it. Bars need to be staffed better. Takes forever at some.of them when it's busy.
